My Kale Pesto Recipe + Weekend Sale

Hello there,  Well I have to say that I've had a bit of bloggers block this week - I really couldn't think what I wanted to write about. In a moment of procrastination I made my kale pesto for the 100th time this winter and thought - there's my blog post staring me in the face. So this week I'm delighted to share the old faithful recipe with you. I am such a throw-it-all-together kind of cook, so writing out this recipe by weight and measures was incredibly challenging for me. I definitely encourage a bit of 'taste and adjust' with this one.  Also, I wanted to let you know...

Ok so it's been a while since I've had a cocktail.....like quite a while! Fertility prep, plus 9 months preggie time and now nursing. I've never been a big drinker but I have to say, every now and then I kind of feel like a drink :) The irony of the name of this blog post is that a chia colada isn't even a drink, let a long an alcoholic drink! Of course in true Simone style it's a healthy little morsel of omega goodness in a glass (a chia pudding really) that reminds me of pina colada. I clearly need a holiday somewhere exotic...
